Exerpeutic 1000XL Elliptical Trainer: The Pros


Price: A very obvious pro of the Exerpeutic 1000XL is its low price point. It retails at $299.99, although as with most products you may be able to find it considerably cheaper. At that price it sits slightly above the cheapest products in the market such as the Body Rider BRD2000 but still well below the average price.

In terms of affordability, then, the Exerpeutic 1000XL will satisfy most customer’s demands. Only those on the very strictest of budgets will find themselves priced out by this elliptical.


LCD Display: LCD displays vary considerably from one exercise machine to another. Some exercise machines don’t even have LCD screens whatsoever, although this is becoming rarer and rarer with consumers demanding more and more technology in their products.


Some LCD displays are too small to read easily when training. This can be especially annoying if you’re eyesight is less than perfect. However, the Exerpeutic 1000XL offers an LCD screen similar in size and visibility to many more expensive rivals, which makes it a decent offering.


Stability: One of the major worries with cheap exercise machines like the Exerpeutic 1000XL is stability. Often the low price is matched by low-grade parts and poor build quality. This results in equipment that’s unstable during exercise. An unstable machine can be very distracting and make a workout much more challenging than it normally would be. It can also lead to damage and broken parts in some cases – something everyone wants to avoid.


Although the Exerpeutic 1000XL can’t match the more expensive elliptical trainers for stability, it does fare well considering its price. This is true even when doing fairly strenuous work outs, which will put any product through its paces. You won’t find yourself distracted during your work out by loose parts or a shaky frame with this elliptical.


Smooth Movement: Many cheap elliptical trainers make noticeable sacrifices when it comes to quality of design and how it affects the movement of the parts. This can make for jerky motion during exercise which is distracting and can even make a product unusable. The Exerpeutic 1000XL maintains a smooth motion throughout your workout. This keeps exercise distraction-free, and more importantly makes it suitable for users who may suffer with joint injuries in the legs and cannot endure jerky motion.



Exerpeutic 1000XL Elliptical Trainer: The Cons


Assembly: One thing which customers often overlook when considering which device to purchase is the assembly that has to be done once you get your exercise equipment into your house. The assembly can be challenging even for the mechanically minded depending on the instruction manual and assembly process itself.


Unfortunately the Exerpeutic 1000XL falls flat on its face in these terms. It can take up to three hours to assemble thanks to the very poor instructions that confuse more than they guide. You can be guaranteed of a headache when trying to assemble this, and won’t be using the product for quite some time after you get it to your home in its packaging.


Pedals: Due to a strange design, the pedals into which you place your feet during exercise encourage your feet to slide forward. This is a nuisance, and really calls for a rethink from the design department.

If you like to use your equipment bare-footed at home you can forget this machine. When your feet are unprotected by footwear the slipping forward becomes uncomfortable to the point of distraction. You’ll need to use footwear at all times to make use of this, and even then it feels a little odd.


LCD Batteries: Users will have mixed opinions on this, but the LCD display requires batteries to operate. It can be annoying when they run out and need to be replaced. If you don’t have any batteries lying around, you’ll have to exercise without using any readouts.


Is The Exerpeutic 1000XL Elliptical Trainer Worth Buying?


On the whole the Exerpeutic 1000XL isn’t a bad elliptical trainer for the price. It offers a smooth motion and reasonable stability for a cheaper device. It might not last as long as its more expensive competitors, but it may still be worth buying if your budget is tight. The assembly difficulties might put you off though, as might the unusual issue with the pedals. Don’t expect a perfect experience with this one.
